Over 12,000 Downloads Monthly! December 2013 Web Newsletter Special Edition
From The Publisher’s Desk:
Here is what I know: Everyone
remembers a good treatment. It’s in our
nature, whether we choose to verbalize our
experiences, or keep them deep in the
recesses of our minds. So when I received
an invitation from the good folks at Xerox
Corporation, to join them in New York City,
for a presentation of their “Best Practices”
customer care approach and to boot, enjoy an
evening of tennis at the US Open, over Labor
Day, I could not thank them enough for their
kindness.
It got me thinking about how much
work goes into pleasing The Customer. My
hosts at this event, were almost too
embarrassed to accept my compliments, of
their efforts, implying, that it needn’t be a big
deal, but it was, to me! It mattered to me!
And that’s precisely why we, in the customer
care community, must always remain
cognizant of the impact of our words and
deeds, on The Customer.
We implore you to gain a tip or two,
from these companies, and share this edition
of our newsletter through your social media
outlets. Ask your friends to tweet, re-tweet,
and share with their connections. Everyone
loves stories about companies caring for their
customers!
I know that in my heart, I will be
forever in the debt of anyone that has ever
done business with Call Center Times!
Wishing you a very rewarding 2014!
Regards,

Create a moving experience for the
customer, and you have an advocate for life!
So it was against this backdrop that I asked
our readers to share testimonials of their
cutting edge customer service efforts, this
year. In all, we have published about 50
testimonials, for your enjoyment. We hope
that you will be inspired by the depth of
commitment, of these wonderful companies,
to caring for their customers.
We have published their testimonials in
the order in which their submissions were
received. (not in alphabetical order) Even
more heartwarming is that a number of these
organizations are already partners of Call
Center Times.

Auld Lang Syne … What to Leave Behind?
By Kathleen M. Peterson
Chief Vision Officer, PowerHouse Consulting, Inc.
Another year is about to end. Soon we will be raising our
glasses and our voices as 2013 turns to 2014, heralded in
to the chorus of “Auld Lang Syne.” How did this tradition
begin? I consulted the Internet and discovered via ABC
news that “despite its strong association with New Year’s
Eve, ‘Auld Lang Syne,’ written by Robert Burns in the
1700s, was never intended to be a holiday song. Guy
Lombardo is credited with popularizing the song when his
band used it as a segue between two radio programs
during a live performance at the Roosevelt Hotel in New
York in 1929. By coincidence, the band played “Auld Lang
Syne” just after the clock struck midnight and a New Year’s
tradition was born.” (headlines/2012/12/auld-lang-synewhat-does-it-mean-again/) Here is just another unintended
consequence of a random act … similar some might say to
the impact of social media. Radio was an early vehicle for
social media! Promotion of products, ideas, entertainment,
and politics had never before enjoyed such a magnificent
platform.
The words “auld lang syne” mean “times gone by” and that
is what I would like to discuss … the times gone by this
year. What has been learned, changed, or forever altered?
What is better, worse, or unchanged? The Contact Center
industry is one in which so much is changing or could
change. But sadly it often remains the same, or heaven
forbid, it gets worse. I would like to share a few areas that I
think really need to change in the Contact Center business.
These will merit the lifting of a glass and the singing of
Auld Lang Syne. They are things best left behind!
“MARKETING DOESN’T TELL US ANYTHING.”
When will this mantra ever end? I have heard this phrase
for close to 25 years! If you know Marketing isn’t
communicating activity which spikes your call volume, then
institute the ASK Program (Always Seek Knowledge).
Engage with Marketing in advance and open a dialogue.
Look for ways the Contact Center can support Marketing.
Demonstrate the value of sharing information by identifying
information the Contact Center is able to collect which has
value to Marketing. Consider the fact that Marketing is not
“holding back” information; it is much worse. They simply
do not recognize the Contact Center as a cross-functional
partner worthy of time and attention. It is your job as a
Contact Center leader to change that mindset! This is an
issue that can and must be eradicated; there is no place
for it in 21st Century operations.
“TRAINING IS CANCELLED.”
This sentences rankles me each time I hear it. I once
polled an audience equipped with a response device on
this topic. First I asked, “Who believes training is a critical
success factor in the Contact Center?” Participants agreed
unanimously that it was. Later in the same talk, I asked
how many attendees had recently cancelled training for
one reason or another. Ninety percent confessed!
Training is the single most important activity any Contact
Center engages in. (And in today’s world, there are many
ways to engage learners that extend well beyond the
traditional instructor-led model.) Cancelling training may
occur for very legitimate reasons. However, cancelling
training or (even worse) not scheduling training causes
staff morale to decline and overall quality to suffer. Far too
often the only training front line agents experience is the
new hire program! Consider evaluating this past year’s
training. Did ALL front line staff participate in 10, 20, 30

Bedford, NH 03110

hours of training this year? When evaluating this for “times
gone by” think about what you consider to be training. Your
answers may be enlightening.
Instead of a Christmas tree this year, mount a Learning
Tree in your Center as a reminder of the many ways in
which we learn. We learn when we interact with coaches,
peers, and customers. We learn when we share articles or
white papers. This tree can be themed monthly … “What
have we learned about our customers?”, “What have we
learned about our processes? “, or “What foolish things do
we do?” (perfect for April Fool’s Day). Make it fun and
create incentives around contributions and suggestions.
Create a program where your “Learning Tree” bears fruit.
Consider having Contact Center staff hang “fruit” in the
form of learning testimonials and a monthly harvest of
interesting insights to be enjoyed! People learn from a
variety of events and activities; we must broaden our
definition of training to include the power of observation,
discussion, insight, and curiosity. People long to be part of
something. How wonderful it would be to make them a part
of a Learning Operation. I believe there are things you can
do to stimulate (i.e., feed the tree)! Provide a well-designed
topic schedule for team meetings, lead lunch and learn
discussions, create scavenger hunts. Any activity that
“stimulates” qualifies. Broaden your definition of training so
that the experience becomes more creative and your
annual training hours grow. All while the Learning Tree
bears fruit!
“WE DON’T HAVE MANAGEMENT TRAINING.”
Management training remains the MOST NEGLECTED
area in Contact Centers though front line leaders
(supervisors, team leads, etc.) face massive challenges.
For many, it their first management position as they most
often rise from the ranks. These leaders have a large
number of people to oversee … with no previous
experience and little if any management training. It is sad
that companies are often satisfied with leaders that lead
based on how they were managed. It is all they know and
if it was a good experience, that’s great. If not, the
experience can be disheartening for all. How many hours
did your Contact Center leaders spend in management
raining this year? What is your plan for next year? Think
about it, seriously!
“WHAT IS YOUR TALENT PIPELINE AND WHO IS IN IT?”
Talent is a precious commodity. How to get it, nurture it,
and keep it has long been the topic of endless
management books, conference sessions, and articles.
There is good reason for this. Talent is critical to success
and succession. I am really troubled by those Contact
Centers that do not possess a genuine “Talent Pipeline.”
Interestingly enough, there are often others in the
enterprise that look at the Contact Center as THEIR Talent
Pipeline. This is all well and good as long as everyone
involved is included in the decision. Cross-functional
“poaching” is very common. Its occurrence is often used to
soften the blow of turnover numbers ...”a high percentage
of folks that we lost in the Contact Center took other jobs
in the company.” While this might look like a good thing,
how good is it for your customers?
Experience promises are made and include connecting
customers to competent resources. (No company says call
us and we will hook you up with a trainee who is years
away from knowing the answer to your question.) These
promises must be kept or your Customer Experience will
suffer! You must evaluate to assure that your agents and/or
front line management are not making lateral moves simply
to get out of the Contact Center. If they are, there is
something wrong. And of course the poachers are not

Bedford, NH 03110

going to take your poor performers; they are hunting for
TRUE TALENT. This leaves you and your customers with
poor performers and new hires. Turnover in the Contact
Center must be calculated from the customer’s perspective
and plans made to retain a balance of skills in the Center.
The resources you want to hold onto must feel as though
they are part of a true Talent Pipeline … one that has
opportunities for growth within the Contact Center and
within the enterprise. Be creative and craft mechanisms
that keep talent alive and engaged!
Of course the Talent Pipeline really begins with hiring. So I
once again share the sage advice my daddy once gave to
me related to my dating choices ...”Easy to get is hard to
get rid of.”
………..
I wish you all Peace in this holiday season. I wish you all
quiet time to relax and enjoy your friends and family. And
when you sing “Auld Lang Syne” this year, remember the
things you want to bring forward next year. Remember too,
the things best left behind … but that will remain branches
on your learning tree forever!
“For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne, we’ll take
a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne.”
Best,
Kathleen

WHITE PAPER:
The Incentive
You Can’t Count
On Is the Best
Incentive
Incentive programs can
be more effective when
the award value is
random and the
participant can choose
whether to engage with
the program through
variable reinforcement
options. This white
paper discusses the
impact game mechanics
(gamification) can have
on the performance of
incentive programs,
outlines the psychology
behind variable payouts
and provides three case
studies (2 of which
were in contact center
environments) to
support the
effectiveness of
variable, random award
payouts. Download and
read the complete white
paper HERE.
